The amendment to the bylaw removes the restrictions on the use of construction materials to decorate the soil of a grave in the lawn cemetery.
We’re proposing to revoke, in its entirety, clause 11.7: "No person may decorate the soil of a grave located in the lawn cemetery with the use of construction materials such as concrete, stone or metal or with the construction of fences or pavement."
Other rules in relation to decorating the soil of a grave at Council cemeteries still stand, and grave decorations remain subject to other enforceable provisions in the bylaw.
